(EDIT: there is some confusion over the closing date for this offer. The Avios page of the HR website still shows ‘250 points = 375 Avios’ but confusingly says transfers must be made ‘before’ 1st March. On the other hand, the HR home page says that the bonus runs ‘until’ 1st March. I would take a screenshot of the ‘250 points = 375 Avios’ page just to be sure.)
Today (Wednesday) is the last day to initiate a transfer of take advantage of the Heathrow Rewards / Avios bonus.
Heathrow Rewards, the loyalty scheme for shopping at Heathrow, has been offering a 50% bonus on transfers to Avios for the last few weeks.
The offer is clearly flagged on the Heathrow Rewards site when you log in. This offer ONLY applies to Avios and does not apply to:
Virgin Flying Club
Lufthansa Miles & More
The bonus applies to all transfers to Avios made before today, 1st March.
Whilst it’s too late for this offer, non-members should remember that you can currently earn 3,000 Heathrow Rewards points by opening an account and spending £150 in one day.
This is a very generous offer – as good as it has ever got with Heathrow Rewards. The link to the 3,000 point sign-up offer is on the avios.com website here. Foreign currency purchases do not count towards the £150 spend.
And new partners coming soon ….
I met up with the head of Heathrow Rewards at Loyalty 2017 last week and he gave me a run down of what is coming soon.
I won’t spoil the surprise, but it is likely that we will see some new airline partners coming this year.
We should also see an expansion of the ‘convert miles INTO Heathrow Rewards’ feature – currently only available for Emirates – which is a great way of emptying out a mileage account with a small balance.
Details of how to convert Emirates Skywards miles into Heathrow Rewards points are here. You can also convert Lufthansa Miles & More miles into Heathrow shopping vouchers – but not Heathrow Rewards points – via this page.
